Orwell’s 1984 Coming To TV :

Of course, with the madness of the last year and the leaders of America and Russia both painting an Orwellian picture, you might think that we are already living in George Orwell’s world.

In 2013, Robert Icke and Duncan Macmillan took Orwell’s story to the stage, a successful run that even included a Broadway show starring Olivia Wilde. Now this version of the tale is being brought to the small screen for a five part series.

Can it be anywhere near as powerful as the classic John Hurt / Richard Burton version? We will know soon…
